    Pros

    The training was good enough. It was an interactive training with a group of maybe 15 to 20 people which allowed everyone to feel comfortable as a new employee because their was a bunch of new employees for different departments. I also like that we able to keep track of our time, so if we forget to clock any or something, we can adjust the time right on the register accordingly. Nordstrom as a whole is very employee driven which is a major plus.

    Cons

    There are a lot of young managers who don't know if they want to be strict or cool. They can be pretty nasty sometimes. The return policy is terrible. Customers are allowed to return anything, damaged, worn, old, you name it. It's not good for employees who make commission and have their pay reduced because of old returns.

  2. Great place to work if fashion is your career.
    Move up fast or be stuck forever.

    Pros

    Fun environment.
    Discount.
    Beautiful people.
    Product sells itself.
    Name recognition.
    Promotes from within.

    Cons

    Most sales reps make 13$ an hour and under.
    Must build business to make a living, can take upwards to a year.
    Women dominated management. Especially in the mens department, (they're nice but know nothing about men's fashion)
    Training is nearly nonexistent. 3 days @ the most.
    Commission only, no hourly, can be hard during the down seasons.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the percentage of comission in smaller stores, it would reduce the ridiculous turnover.
    More accountable management
